Is this normal?

[tim at javadev1 tim]$ scp opteron:/tmp/tim2 boomshakalaka:/tmp
ssh: boomshakalaka: Name or service not known
lost connection
[tim at javadev1 tim]$ echo $?

And if so why given that the man page says:

      scp exits with 0 on success or >0 if an error occurred."

I've tried to search the archives to no avail BTW.
Sorry if I am asking the wrong question in the wrong
forum but I did not know what else to do.
